What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"For years, Mein Kampf stood as proof of the blindness and complacency of the world. In its pages Hitler announced—long before he came to power—a program of blood and terror in a self-revelation of such overwhelming frankness that few had the courage to believe it...That such a man could go so far toward realizing his ambitions—that is a phenomenon the world will ponder for centuries to come."—Konrad Heiden, author of Der Fuhrer: Hitler's Rise to Power

As disturbing and dark as the ideas in this book are, we should never be afraid to learn why Hitler thought he was right to what he did. Learning from the past is our only hope in preventing this type of thinking in the future.

I am 17 and I went and bought this book because my history teacher was talking to my class about it. I didn't think it would be so interesting just from the beginning itself. I am actually glad I got it even though some people give me some strange faces when I have it. 'To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.' - Hitler And with this book, we do just that. You figure out why Hitler did what he did and possible reason's behind it.

this book a thrill to read. full of insite in the background of Adolf Hitler and his family. and the rise of his power throughout the years of his miltary existence. he was a smart man, very artistic and knew alot about the world. this book has so much information that i never knew about and led me to think that he was crazy, but it was from the people he served from in war. his tatics where very futuristic and served good but the way his thoughts where on a race where very indiscribable. A age recommendation i would put would be over the age of 15. www.wwIIhitlersrise.com Clive Miller Timber Creek High School Class of 2010

I couldn't agree more with the previous review - you have to read this to understand history and make sure we don't repeat it. Don't ban books!

'Mein Kampf', by Hitler, shows his deep anger at the world. He always ends up accusing the Jews for Germany's fate. This propaganda started the war in which 50,000,000 people died. His past is revealed, and we can understand from 'Mein Kampf' that Hitler was a seriously disturbed individual. 'Mein Kampf' has very advanced writing techniques, even though I had read the translated version, I can tell you it's good (If you are interested in the subject).

This book was thrilling yet kind of scared me at the same time. If your into WW2 and/or interested in what Hitler was thinking its a very good book.

Although I may not agree with his conclusions. It has given me a deeper understanding of the man. Very interesting historic read, from his perspective.

Very informative and gives details of how Hitler became antisemetic. Also how he came into power from being a soldier in WWI. I could not put this book down and finished it in about a week and a half.
